 I am thirty years late, but starting to build the canard and wing. I am using an inboard gear on the canard like my Dragonfly so the bottom of the canard is flat. I have all the jigging in place, level with a digital level and lazer level. The foam cores were also leveled with a digital level before cutting.

When installing the foam from BL 15 to BL48 and to BL100 they all fit very well. When going to install the BL31.9 jig, it does not fit quite level, It is off about 1/16th in the front.

Do I need this jig in place? What I am doing tomorrow is to mark each jig at

number 4 and 12 from the cutting templates. I will then get some 5/8 steel drywall channel, notch out the jigs and glue the channel in place.

Hopefully this will give me some straight structural support for the foam. If need be I can support the channel between the jigs. This will allow me not to use the 31.9 template.

Any ideas and or critisism is welcome. Take care---------------Chris

Anyway, landed and shut down with 100.1 hours showing on the Hobbs. Not much for you high-timers, but passing the hundred hour mark seems significant to me.

I remember breaking the century mark. I too thought it a big deal - because it is.  Now I am closing in on 1000hrs (100 to go).  Another big deal to me.  Old news to the likes of Sam, Paul and some others.

Beware. According to stats, you have become at risk.  Stay vigilant.
Congrats! Jerry

I second what Paul said. That is a great accomplishment Jay. Especially at the altitude and densities you operate in.  Well done.

Now just keep an eye on those little Gremlins👍 Really keep an eye on fuel filters as the glass work inside the tank is still shedding.

Dragonfly -Mark II Gear

Pat Weaver
 

Hey guys, I was wondering if anyone knows of anyone with Mark II dragonfly gear legs for sale or the plans for the spring steel conversion? I joined a dragonfly group but noone had a complete set to sell and one person sold their spare spring steel set. It just so happens that my Q2 has the Mark II gear and it was clearly damaged when I bought it but the seller neglected to mention it. It was not apparent until it was taxing and had weight in it; towed out about 2" and looks awful! Needless to say, it needs to be replaced. I am hoping maybe someone here on the Q list may be able to assist me. I appreciate any help you can provide.

Kind Regards,

Pat W.

Spring Fling!!

Paul Fisher
 

Spring Fling is next weekend and I think I'm finally ready!  I replaced a cylinder (twice actually!), but it seems to be running great.  Oil temperatures have come down, so I'm hoping the rings have seated.  KDEH is only an hour away, and I've made several flights longer than that.

Today I washed and waxed the plane.  I don't think it has been this clean in several years!  I think I'm finally ready to go!!  Kevin, I hope you got your order in for good weather, because I'm excited to finally go somewhere!

I'm looking forward to seeing everyone next weekend.
